PITTSBURGH (AP) — OK Pitt, you asked for it.
The struggling Panthers will get a glimpse of what awaits them in the ACC next season when they host 13th-ranked Virginia Tech (2-0) on Saturday. Pitt (0-2) will jump from the Big East to the ACC in 2013 and will end up playing the Hokies annually as part of the ACC Coastal Division.
New Panthers coach Paul Chryst says he’s not focused on the future, perhaps because the present demands his full attention. Pitt has looked awful during the first two games of Chryst’s tenure, losing at home to Youngstown State before getting blown out by Cincinnati last week.
The Hokies made the transition from the Big East to the ACC nearly a decade ago.
